The Birks Cinema

Robin Baker Architects

The rescue of the Birks Cinema has created an attractive new leisure facility for Aberfeldy. Disused since 2005, the building was previously an eyesore. An inspired local group, the Friends of the Birks Cinema, recognised the potential behind the Art Deco façade and set about purchasing the building and raising funds.

The determined efforts of the Friends and their architect have helped to restore the dignity of Aberfeldy. An area previously blighted by an abandoned hulk, has been transformed in a way that boosts local pride and has enhanced community cohesion and the attractiveness of Aberfeldy as a destination. The Friends have delivered a vibrant new amenity and a new focal point for the town.
